Keep The Difference For Yourself
The Mobility Allowance with is currently worth £62.25 a week for the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA), the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of the Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and the Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)*.
By choosing a vehicle that costs less than the allowance you'll receive the remainder of your money back from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) or, if you live in Northern Ireland, the Social Security Agency.
There are normally around 200 cars available to lease through the Motability Scheme that cost less than the weekly Mobility Allowance. They can all be ordered without you having to pay any Advanced Payment, and the fixed, weekly amount of money needed to pay for the lease of the vehicle is sent straight to Motability.
It’s easy to work out how much money you'll keep. Simply take the current allowance rate of £62.25, and then subtract the weekly rental amount. For example, if the car you want to order has an advertised weekly rental of £50, you would keep £11.20 of your Mobility Allowance every week. In this example, over the course of the 3 year Motability lease, or a total of 156 weeks, the amount of money you get back would be £1747.20. In fact, you could expect the total to actually be little bit higher as the Mobility Allowance amount normally increases annually every April.
